Demi Lovato To Direct ‘Child Star’ Documentary at Hulu

Demi Lovato is making their directorial debut with a Hulu Original documentary about former child stars.  The documentary film is currently titled “Child Star” (working title)  and will “deconstruct the highs and lows of growing up in the spotlight through the lens of some of the world’s most famous former child stars, including Lovato,” and how “their rise to fame, fortune and power affects their futures.”

Lovato will co-direct alongside Nicola Marsh (“Stay on Board: The Leo Baker Story,” “Song Exploder). Producers include Michael D. Ratner’s OBB Pictures, Lovato’s production banner DLG and Scooter Braun’s SB Projects.

The film will reportedly interview a number of former child stars, however, no names have been revealed yet.  Through intimate conversations led by Lovato, verité footage, and archival material from all subjects involved, the film will reach beyond the traditional narratives seen in op-eds and tabloids to consider the changing nature of growing up in an increasingly connected and public world.

Lovato’s acting/singing career started on the Disney Channel Original movie “Camp Rock” and TV show “Sonny With a Chance.”

“There is no better film or topic for my directorial debut than this story, which is close to home,” said Lovato. “Our project sheds light on important messages about growing up in the public eye, learning to protect our boundaries, and becoming active advocates of our own destinies. I’m humbled to be able to learn from the individuals who have lived the unique experience of child stardom and share their stories in our film.”

The doc feature will release on Hulu in 2024.
